SLAX 6.1.2 Build help?
I figured sense SLAX is based on Slackware this would be the place to go. My question to you guys is when I'm building a SLAX distro how can I filter through the libraries it suggests I need and the ones I really need? I am currently downloading my first build and I'm hoping it works. Any help or knowledge you'd like to share about SLAX would be much appreciated. I am pretty new to this distro but have already fallen in love with it! It's great on my old computers that seem to have trouble running the newer distros. So I know these modules will be on my distro when I run the live boot but will I have to install them manually or will they just be preinstalled and ready to go? This is a long post so I'm gonna end it here! Thank you in advance for any help you may provide!

Slax is a live-system. You cannot install it!

As of the modules, it's explained on their website very detailed how it works.

1. Download the isofile and the modules you need.
2. Mount the isofile (as root) with

mount nameofthefile.iso /mnt/tmp
3. Copy the directorystructure including all files to your computer

mkdir slax
cp -r /mnt/tmp/* slax/

4. copy the modules into the /modules directory
5. use the sh file (don't know the name as yet) to build your own isofile
6. Burn it or mount it in vbox
